This private non-profit nature center with a Discovery Center that includes a Nature Exchange and Exhibits, plus a Theatre is focused on interpreting the Chattahoochee River Watershed. With 127 acres of woodland and wetland trails the Nature Center has several well marked walking trails and a river boardwalk with rehabilitated animals along the route. Beautiful butterfly gardens and Georgia's eco-regions are emphasized. The Unity Garden is a great place to learn about sustainable community gardening. Bring a picnic, visit the Nature Store, watch the movie (Re-Imagine the Chattahoochee) and enjoy learning about the Chattahoochee River and environs and the native plants and animals that call this place home. Regular programming takes place, check the website for times and dates of special events that are family friendly. The Nature Exchange in the Discovery Center is a trader's delight!

This is always fun for a day out with the kids. There are trails to walk, gardens and animals to admire, and an indoor display for when it gets too hot. Especially good for their special events.
